in reply to OO Perl Usage

tqisjim:

There are far too many object (Moose, Mouse, Moo, Class, etc.) systems in Perl and too many things that build on objects (Dancer, Catalyst, DBIc...) to imagine that there only a few developers who use OO. I think a more plausible argument might be XML is annoying enough that many developers ignore it, and of the perl developers that do, they've found an XML package that works close enough to their liking.

Disclaimer: I do only a little OO programming in perl. Most of my stuff is just quick hacks.

    Your disclaimer of tending to quick hacks points to another possibility: of Perl devs dealing with XML, many probably don't bother with an XML package.

      Good point ... especially as evidenced by some questions on parsing XML with regexes...
